The PGA Catalunya Resort recently hosted the BMW Golf Cup International which saw three Spaniards qualify for the the World Final.
[UKPRwire, Mon Oct 15 2012] Jesús Aguinaga, Luis Mena and Patricia Domínguez Arburua were triumphant in their respective categories in the National Final of the BMW Golf Cup International, which took place at the PGA Catalunya Resort.

The BMW Golf Cup International 2012 held its National Final on Saturday 6th October at the PGA Catalunya Resort. Finalists who qualified in 12 local trials held throughout the season across Spain travelled to the resort.
The spectacular "Stadium" golf course at the PGA Catalunya Resort, named best golf course in Spain in the "100 best golf courses where you can play" list in British magazine Golf World, proved to be a difficult test for competitors, none of whom were able to go under the course par.
The winner in the first category was Jesús María Aguinaga, representing Lurauto, from Gipuzkoa, who with a score of 76 strokes was able to beat his closest competitors by four strokes. In the second category, Madrid's Luis Mena, representing Ibericar Cuzco Motor, did the same and with 75 strokes he also beat his closest competitors by 4 strokes. The most hard-fought of the day was the ladies catgeory, where Patricia Domínguez Arburua achieved a birdie on the 18th to claim victory with the least strokes.
These three players now have the honour of representing Spain in the World Final, taking place in March in South Africa, where they will face winners from the other 45 countries. Three places will be at stake to play the previous Pro-Am at the Open BMW International which will take place in Munich (Germany) during the Summer of 2013.
